Welcome!

Welcome to this digital space—a space where you can learn a little bit about my professional work. I am an Associate Professor in the Writing, Rhetoric, and Communication program and Director of the First-Year Seminar program at Transylvania University in Lexington, KY where I teach classes such as Digital Rhetoric, Feminist Rhetorics, Writing for/with Nonprofits, Business Writing, and First-Year seminar courses.

My primary scholarly interests lie at the intersection of feminist rhetorics and digital rhetoric. In both my teaching and research, I am interested in conceptions of community/belonging and social justice—and especially in the ways writing and languaging (and assumptions about them) mediate community engagement and social justice work.

Previously, I have served as one of the founders of and Co-Director of Transylvania’s Digital Liberal Arts initiative, mentored graduate teaching assistants, assisted the director and Placement Coordinator in Bowling Green State University’s General Studies Writing program, and worked in writing centers (both face-to-face and online).

My pronouns are she/her.

"Here's how you can show up: Knowledge plus empathy plus action. If you take any one away, you're performing." —Rachel Cargle

“Education must begin with the solution of the teacher-student contradiction, by reconciling the poles of the contradiction so that both are simultaneously students and teachers.” —Paulo Freire

"Instead of conceiving inclusive education as an outcome that must be achieved, we have conceptualized it as a process that is always ongoing, continual, and by extension, unfinished." —Scot Danforth and Srikala Naraian

"Writing is feminist machinery, and play is one of its gears." —Laura Micciche
